Getting Started with Azure Functions [Video]

By: Paul Oliver

Overview of this book

With Azure Functions, you can easily run small pieces of code in the cloud without worrying about a whole application or the infrastructure to run it. Azure Functions, can be used with triggers to execute your code and bindings to simplify the input and output of your code. This tutorial starts with the basics of Azure Functions and then shows you how to create functions such as WebHooks, Azure Connected, and event processing. Moving ahead, the course demonstrates how to develop, manage, deploy, and monitor your Azure functions in almost any language such as C#, F#, Node.js, Python, PHP, as well as scripting options such as Bash, Batch, and PowerShell. Next, you'll see how to scale your functions and use them to process data, integrate systems, and build simple APIs and microservices. Finally, we'll cover some diagnostic techniques with Azure App Services and the best practices of working with Azure Functions. By the end of this tutorial, you will be well-versed with the techniques of scaling your Azure Functions and making the most of the serverless architecture.

Using Azure Resource Manager with Function Apps
ARM templates for storage accounts and VMs are pretty straightforward, but they are a little tricky with Function Apps. How can we create a reusable template for our function apps? - Show how you can download a good starting point ARM template from the Azure Portal - Tweak the template so that it is tied to a particular branch in a publicly-available Github repo - Use deployment options to create a webhook for deploying after Git pushes
